Bubblegum Lemonade is an offshoot of sorts for Lawrence ‘Loz’ McClusky, who is usually one half of Strawberry Whiplash with Sandra McClusky. He makes what is essentially pure jangly indie-pop with both outfits, but out right now is a lovely 7″ vinyl (yes, that’s right now) on the fabulous Matinee records from the former, a long-awaited follow-up to their ‘Sophomore Release’ album, that came out back in 2010.
The track, titled Have you seen Faith? see’s the Glasgow based band tread much of the same ground that has been done before, in the c86/indiepop vein. That’s not to say its bad. In fact its a lilting, harmony-laden track, complete with Rickenbacker solo and infectious little chorus. Whatever the time of day and mood, there’s always time in your day for little pop gems like this. You can grab it over at the Matinee website, here.
I haven’t met Faith no, but if she’s anything like this track, I wish I had.
